Assessments, examinations and academic appeals

Assessments, examinations and academic appeals

Many of our courses are validated by the University of Brighton, and are subject to its General Examinations and Assessment Regulations (GEAR). These include sections on late and non submission of work, plagiarism, and mitigating circumstances, which students should make themselves aware of prior to the start of their courses.

An Academic Appeal is a formal request to ask an Examination Board to look again at its decision. This might concern your degree classification, a single piece of work or a whole module. It might also concern your “progression”, which means a decision about whether you continue to the next stage of your degree, are asked to repeat a module or are asked to leave the programme.

The procedure for making an Academic Appeal is detailed here and the regulations relating to Academic Appeals for students on a University of Brighton validated programme form part of their General Examination and Assessment Regulations (GEAR), which is available here:
